One big reason i had time to watch pirated uploads of scrubs so blurry they were basically radio (this was back when netflix was a dvd mailer service) is the way i wrote my term the library, don't spend much time determining whether each reference is perfectly targeted to your paper.
Back to toppresenting the paperyour job is not quite you write a research paper without consulting other works, then you have written an essay, not a report.
So, for example, one paper i wrote was about justin martyr, an early theologian, and inclusivism, a doctrine about who gets into heaven.A rule of thumb is that if you did not know the information before you started the paper, then you should use a citation to show where you found the information.
At the end of the paper, a bibliography repeats the full documentation of these sources, listing them alphabetically by author.I googled "justin martyr inclusivism" and was immediately presented with blog posts directing me to relevant portions of his work — even though he never used the word "inclusivism" — as well as online versions of his writings where i could copy and paste potentially useful text instead of having to transcribe it.
Back to topcitations and referencesall good research papers rely on information compiled by and analysis done by you've done this for all your sources, you will have a file with every quote and fact you need to reference in your paper.
